Loser: Otto Porter Jr.
The Raptors barely even got to see how Porter fits into the rotation, as he played just eight games. While he could be a versatile defender that supplements his primary skill with some solid 3-point shooting, Dick could make him redundant.
Even if the 3-point shooting cancels each other out, Dick has the potential to be a much more creative offensive player who is equally annoying and disruptive on the defensive side. All of that points to an expanded role for Dick and a minimized role for Porter.
Gradey Dick could be bad for Otto Porter Jr.
Attempts to trade Porter might prove difficult, as the thinking around the league seems to be that Porter’s injury history has made him a negative asset. The Raptors might be stuck with him despite the fact they drafted an ostensibly better player to take up his rotation spot.
Porter may end up in the Thad Young role, as he will be seldom used and only called into action when the outcome of the game has already been decided. That is certainly not what Ujiri and the front office expected when they gave him a ton of money in free agency.
